Subject: A Killer AUD - Give it a Listen!
This is such a nice show, that I had to pipe up and give it some love.

This is a solid Dead show, and a very nice AUD recording. All the nuances are pretty clear here - cymbals, Bobby's rig, Brent - with a nice level of crowd. The room is present, especially when Phil digs in.

They come right out of the gate with 'Stranger' and don't let up. Jerry is on fire.

If you like the Dead, chances are you'll do well to put on some headphones and listen deep.This is one of those shows that makes me wish I could have seen the Dead live, particularly as they entered this period of the early 80's and matured fully as a band.

Thanks Barry and John for the recording.

The extended jam out of He's Gone is a thing of beauty.

This show smokes. I agree with previous comment.I prefer to laid back crowds and a smoking hot show. Even being from the east coast,just rather the crowd mellow. Lived out on the west coast for awhile though. To me feels more like tour heads when the crowds mellow. Everything about this shows is crisp. Grab it......

This is the first time I've heard it since 1981. This show was as good as I remember it.

Subject: Uptown fun
All three nights of this run have worthy download potential. The 27th seems to be the fave of the run but don't overlook this night. The He's Gone->Jam is particularly sweet. Glassberg did a great job recording these shows. I need to start digging a little deeper into this overlooked year.

Always loved the Uptown. This is a good example of the energy level. Anyone that says the midwest was low energy was never there. I am from Chicago and can tell you from personal experience (I saw every Uptown/Auditorium show) it was crazy baby!
GOD I MISS THAT!

Subject: Nice show - good energy, good recording
Good show with lots energy and it sounds good. The audience recording gives a good sense of the crowd's energy without really interfering with the music. Wish I could have seen them here back in the day.
